Will Smith’s return to music is going full speed ahead, and Thursday night he performed at the Latin Grammys.
The Fresh Prince appears on a remix of Bomba Estereo’s song “Fiesta,” and he joined the artist on stage for an all-out party that featured fireworks. “When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn’t believe it,” founder of the Colombian band Simon Mejia said in a statement when they released the track. “This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of. … It’s just magic.”
“Fiesta” was nominated for record of the year, but lost to Natalia Lafourcade’s’ “Hasta La Raíz.” See Smith’s performance.
Smith recently told Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe that he’s recorded over 30 tracks and that he would go on a world tour with DJ Jazzy Jeff sometime soon. “So I’m looking this summer will be the first time we go out on a full world tour,” Smith told Lowe. Jeff confirmed the plans when he spoke to EW last month. “The thing about Will, from the day I met him, he is never lacking in ideas and content,” Jeff told EW. “It’s just the execution. I’m happy that he’s executing now.”
